Front Line PHP

Building modern applications with PHP 8

About the Book

An ebook on cutting edge tactics in PHP 8, accompanied by practical examples.

Brought to you by open source veterans Brent Roose & Freek Van der Herten from Spatie.

PHP has been one of the leading programming languages for the web for over 25 years. Last year it saw its new release: PHP 8. With it, PHP gives us many new features, even more performance improvements and features like the JIT and preloading.

In this book, we'll not only look at everything new in PHP 8, but also discuss modern day web development with PHP, with topics like writing proper object oriented code, but also what functional programming is about; asynchronous PHP; it's internal development process and more.

It's the book you need to get started with PHP, but also to bring your existing PHP skills to the next level!
